Q: What are you doing tomorrow between 10 am and 6pm?

A :Um. Going to the Omni Hotel at San Jac & 8th (or at 7th & Brazos if you're confused and disoriented like Kelly and I). 


ATX Auctions bought a barrel load of vintage clothing from the 40s 50s 60s 70s and 80s from a Vintage Store that had to close due to bankruptcy before they even opened. Now they are selling over 4000 PIECES  all for less than ten bucks a pop.

The event was held in a conference room in the hotel. It was a very minimal set-up, lacking hangers, dressing rooms, or any lasting organization. However, I didn't mind too much -- it's all part of the thrill of the hunt! Also, let me say how pleased I was with the lack of catty wedding dress outlet-esque women brawls that one would normalyl expect from such an event. But maybe it's because Kelly and I went an hour before they closed at 10 tonight and all the best finds had already been fought for to the death. Perhaps. Anyhoo, I bought a kimono, a vest, and a dress for $18. SUCCESS.

Today and tomorrow are the only days so GO GO GO and spend to your thrifty and fashionable hearts' desires!
